Ganesha (also called Ganesh or Ganapati Tantra) is the deva with the elephant's head in the pantheon of Hinduism. He is the god of knowledge and wisdom, removes obstacles and is the patron saint of travelers. His vahana, vehicle, is a mouse or a rat named Mashika. The Hindus pray to Ganesha before they start something new, such as a new job or when they move. Ganesha is the son of the god Shiva and the goddess Parvati, who together in the cosmogony of Hinduism symbolize the unity of everything. Shiva stands for the subjective conscious and Parvati for the energetic material.
